Five things you can do now to protect our coast and ocean

Join your friends and neighbors in becoming a Coastal Steward.
Check the boxes below and commit to taking the following actions five times and try to make them a habit in the future.

Leave beaches, parks, and neighborhoods cleaner than you found them—pick up trash even if it's not yours.

Take public transportation, bike or walk instead of driving.

Bring a bag with you when you go to the store instead of accepting a paper or plastic bag. For small or single items, tell the clerk you don't need a bag.

Seek out products with minimal packaging and avoid products with excessive packaging. For instance, avoid individual servings in favor of larger packages and bulk foods. Foods like fruit and vegetables can usually be found with less packaging than processed foods!

Don't leave the water running when you brush your teeth or shave.
